Cod liver oil
Cod liver oil was highly sought after by the Icelandic Vikings for health and vitality. The people in Northern Europe and Scandinavia have for centuries identified and valued the natural healing properties of cod liver oil.
Dropi cod liver oil is made of fresh livers from the North Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), which is one of the best natural sources of vitamin A & D as well as the essential omega-3 fatty acids, especially the eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and the docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3 fatty acids must be obtained through the diet since the human body cannot produce them. The omega-3 fatty acid DHA is one of the major building blocks of the human brain and an important fatty acid to ensure optimal cognitive and neurological health.
Throughout history, cod liver oil has been used to prevent rickets, a disease predominantly caused by vitamin D deficiency, and to battle and to treat illnesses such as tuberculosis infections, gout, rheumatism and many other diseases.
Today, the natural health benefits of cod liver oil have been thoroughly researched and thousands of published research findings indicate that regular intake of cod liver oil may have some important health benefits for humans.
